This thoughtful review of what companies can do to retain smart women is a must read. It ends with:
” The past several months being with and around my children throughout the day have felt right for me. I’d wanted to not only survive this time when they’re young, which will be over before I know it, but to really relish in it. In my case I was able to choose to be home with my kids, but, for many, working full-time or taking care of one’s children full-time is a financial necessity.

Thanks, Cristina, for your voice in the state of families in the US today.
